According to Dr. Anne Hallward, “Shame is at the intersection of individual psychology healing and social change.” By sharing our own stories (those that we keep hidden out of a sense of shame), we not only experience healing, we can help others heal. As our healing experiences connect with those of others in our community, we become a powerful force that can act as a catalyst to improve our society.
You are beautiful. Your story is important. Please share it with us. It is my hope that all of the stories shared on this website will inspire others along their journey.
